CAIRO - Russian flights to Egypt will resume soon, Russian President Vladimir Putin told Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in a phone call on Thursday, Sisi's office said in a statement.

"President Putin affirmed Russia's intention to resume regular flights between Moscow and Cairo in the very near future," the statement said.

Flights to Egypt from Russia were suspended after a Russian plane was blown out of the sky over Sinai in October 2015. Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack.
